G7 in Garmisch 8-9 June

Jump to last reply

Just fyi for travelers who might be going to Garmisch, the Garmisch community posted this on Facebook today:

The G7 Summit, an annual meeting of heads of state from seven leading industrial nations, will be held June 7-8 in Elmau, Germany, which is about 12 miles from Garmisch-Partenkirchen.

There will be very little, if any, lodging available in the Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald communities from June 1-10, including the Edelweiss Lodge and Resort. Additionally, thousands of protestors are expected to demonstrate in downtown Garmisch-Partenkirchen and Mittenwald in the days leading up to, during and a day or two after the summit, resulting in potential road closures, travel delays and heightened security measures.

Those traveling in the area need to ensure they have proper identification on them and to expect police checkpoints. Also, there will be border controls implemented at Scharnitz and Griessen.

People who are making vacation plans are encouraged to wait until at least 2-3 days after the summit ends to begin their stay. Also, U.S. service members, civilian employees, family members and retirees are encouraged to lower their personal profiles if they still plan on visiting during the summit timeframe.

And please remember to maintain awareness of your surroundings and avoid situations in which you may be isolated or caught up in protests that have the potential to turn violent.
